  1. The video is nice and all, but has some really important issue when it comes to the timeline itself imo. It's my understanding that James reworked it before the video got out. The most important points being B2, IX, X and Daï. Builders 2 isn't an alternate DQII, it's presented (and is in game) a direct sequel to II, the story taking place because the Scion of Erdrick have defeated Hargon and Malroth. True it all happens in 'another world', but it's is a much a sequel to II than DQM is a prequel to VI. In a similar case, I don't see how The Quest of Daï could be an alternative
  2. That'd be without counting on Horri's latest interview. It seems like he'd like to renew the VR experience. With Dragon Quest VR (the game in Japan where you fight Zoma) already existing, and the DQ Island thing, I'm sure they will come up with new ideas. Like DQ Sword-like games would work well in VR I guess. As for spin-offs, we know there will be at least one The Quest of Daï game on console. Which console one can only hazard a guess, hopefully all of them + PC. But I'm sure we will see more games being announced on console too. DQM4 (with Erik and Mia), I can't see it bei
  3. The way I see it, XI is already a prequel to the Zenithian trilogy. However, I wouldn't mind having a new installment in this one. It feels like the Erdrick saga gets all the love which is kinda unfair. I get that it's the first trilogy, the first games etc, but at some point seeing a brand new game not connected to any previous games would be nice. This is why I wish I had played Swords. It seemed so fresh, both in the artstyle, gameplay, music and ambience as a whole. I thought SE said they wouldn't make one, that the trilogy (quintulogy if you count the Professional ver
  4. Deborah for the progression of her love and respect for the hero. From sleeping on the carpet to bashing some demons' head with her family. That's true life goal there. Plus, out of the three, I think she's the only who doesn't find happiness if you don't marry her.
  5. It ain't Necrosaro, it's necropost I'm a fervent defender of the multi-timeline theory (DQXI splitting into, at least, three different timelines), one of them leading to the Erdrick saga and the other to the Zenith saga. The reason why I would personally put VI before III, in a linear timeline, would be because of the Abel Yushaa animé. Abel Yushaa is a retelling of DQIII. Like an alternative III, sharing a lots of common elements, but also some huge differences, like characters not being the same, a different world topography and geography among other things.

  6. Hehe, thanks! It was lots of fun to make. I should love adding stuff about the Joker trilo/quintulogie, the worlds of Heroes and Monsters 1&2... There's still a lot of stuff to be covered.
  7. Ah darn it! I downloaded some pages when it was still on the site. I guess I could send those to whomever would want to see them (and the texts). Glad you liked the read tho!
  8. I may be a bit biased, since Rubiss is rather involved in Emblem of Roto too, but I for one really like her. I dug a lot around the novel/manga Seirei Rubiss Densetsu as well (the story about her, and Dialto/Erdrick's origins) and came to really appreciate her characterization and behavior throughout the series, games and other works. Sure she is flawed (she wasn't depicted as the top goddess in any of these works, save for the people of Alefgard/Torland) but she's always been interested and involved in humanity as a whole, despite her limited (tho incredible) powers. So hail
  9. Might as well post it here, since it's a Timeline post... My revisited and up-to date Timeline theory. Google Doc- Timeline Theory
  10. Well, that's a fantastic new for Tact fans that's for sure. I still would have prefered Rivals to be localized, but I guess if Tact is, Rivals might be next in line. I do wonder if Stars has something to do with Tact's localization. I can only imagine that's the case, and if so then that's good. More Mobile games will mean more money for SE and a higher chance of seeing more and more games being localized. I wonder about something. Monster Parade has closed its servers in Japan, but could this game still be localized now? Global servers could be opened, right?
  11. I don't know about that. I personally love the designs for Joker 3, X and many other spinoffs. Like, sure the likes of Walk and of the Stars are not the most inspired designed games, but these are mobile ones. The big games have had pretty interesting designs imo. I guess the lack of variety in XI (compared to what X and Joker 3 offered in liberty of creation due to the numerous races of X or the futuristic aspect of J3) made Toriyama less enthusiastic about the game. Nevertheless, his designs keep getting better. Sword still his one of his best inspired work so far imo, and X
  12. Damn it SE, of all DQ mobile games why does it have to be this DQ Wars sub-par game? DQ Rivals alone would be more selling imo. But who am I to judge, eh?
  13. That's absolutely awesome! I've heard of this hex thingy before, but never really thought about what it meant or how it worked. Does it looks like a bunch of 0 and 1, or maybe some other numbers to re-create characters (letters/Kanji, numbers...) or do you have a txt file that you can translate juste like that? Ah, look at me, am sorry, I guess I'll just have to wait and see when you post pictures of the translation process! I wish you a successful endeavor, and I'll be sure to play the heck out of this game once it's translated!
  14. Ooooh that'd be absolutely brilliant! The 3rd Torneko game always looked like a lot of fun. If you do work on it, do you think you could do some screenshots of the work progress and maybe the softwares you use to do so? I've always been curious as to how people translated games, but never actually saw how it worked.
  15. Aye, I haven't played X at all, but apparently he's the version 1 last boss, and main antagonist before meeting his end. He still has a pretty damn big impact on the world and main character tho. Should you want to read some about him, here's his Japanese DQX wikia entry: https://wikiwiki.jp/dq10dic2nd/【冥王ネルゲル】
  16. Zenus (his Japanese name in DQIX is 創造神グランゼニス ("Sōzō-shin guranzenisu", or in English Creation God Grand Zenith, or something like that) is present in DQX, where he's called グランゼニス ("Guranzenisu", or just Grand Zenith in English). It's the god who created mankind (as opposed to those who created the other playable races) and he's alive and well, while his daughter is nowhere to be seen (even tho I believe a ship is named after her Japanese name). There are numerous quests and some npcs (mostly Stella and Sterling) that connect IX and X together. I'm mostly thinking about this ques
  17. Same, I hoped it will be released on all consoles at the same time, as to avoid having to buy a "Definitive Edition" later. Or a Final Mix, Royal, Turbo, Emerald (etc) version later on. Well anyway, I know I won't play it on its release day anyway, since I'll have many other games to beat first, so I'll have the time to see where it's launched and if it'll have more than one edition too. I Stull haven't played XI, which is why I'm glad my first play through will be on PS4 with the Definitive Edition hehe.
  18. As much as I'd live to import the 5 volumes from the US, the price is ridiculously high (around 100€). Fortunately, I was able to find the Japanese scans again. I absolutely love what I saw in these, but there are some point I'd love to see explained. Is there one of you guys I could pm and ask questions about the story/characters? (or even better, any of you looking to sell there volumes? )
  19. Well I for one am glad I'll be able to play the Switch port on PS4, given I've neither played the original PS4 version, nore the Switch version. This way I won't be needing to buy a Switch to play.
  20. While I would rather keep the original trio, I wouldn't mind having the Dragonlord's grandson given more action. Funny thing, in the Enix Gamebook of DQII, the Dragonlord actually has a more prominent role in the story, helping the trip going to Hargon's castle and fighting off monsters while the trio goes on to fight Hargon himself. Plus, he also appeares in his draconic form, which would be cool to see, as it could somehow mimic Yggdragon's form and show how the lineage of this sacred beast has returned to the side of light or something. Dragonlord's grandson, Gamebook vers
  21. Because a good solo RPG is better than any MMORPG imo. The multi-player aspect of IX is the very reason why we don't have a single goof character in the party. X has the luxury of having good and interesting NPCs that can join the party, at times. I'd favor that over any MMO aspect, which also requires players to have a subscription to Nintendo Net or PS+ or something like that I guess. Tho I agree, the best possible thing would be for people to be able to chose what and how they want to play X. I despise MMOs, all of them, cause they often have a pretty interesting story, cool NP
  22. I mean, I guess people can appreciate Angelo because of his brother. Yeah. I like how Angelo makes Marcello even better too.
  23. Well, all the more reason for the game to be released periodically like a full fledged RPG imo. No need for costly OnLine servers, just 5 separate games, 60€ each. Like that, if V1.0 doesn't sell, they won't need to work on V2.0. I wonder, which console would receive DQX, should it be sell outside of Japan? Switch, PC and PS4/5? Would it be deemed worth for westerners on PC and PS, considering the game, while beautifully designed still uses models from the Wii?
  24. I'm personally conflicted about a potential release. As much as I'd love to actually play DQX, explore its rich and interesting world and lore, I also really don't enjoy playing in a world and seeing other members jumping around. I personally don't like MMO, having tried a few. Tho of course this wouldn't be the main reason, and would be selfish methink. However, the reason why I could wish for X not to be localized, is because I fear about its performance. It would need to be played, but just how many people would actually play it, the number, is what worry me. Should X come out,
